An attorney, school counselor, consultant and folks with various other occupations were interviewed by the Morgantown City Council Tuesday evening.
Seven of them were selected to fill the vacant seats in the Human Rights Commission. That entity has been inactive for a while and council decided it was time to get the ball rolling.
Those who applied talked about they see as pressing issues in the community like drug addiction, the homeless and violence in the downtown area. Council members say this will bring together people of diversity in the area while addressing key issues.
"We had people from many diverse backgrounds and we were thrilled to have such a strong poll of people that applied," said Councilwoman Marti Shamberger.
The commission will come up with projects and present them to council for approval.
